I just find it interesting comparing how other devs code in the wild. Pulled up @tom’s notebooks stats just to see what his days are like. Looks like much more reserved in terms of created notebooks and posted revisions. I am with you on quality vs. quantity there.
Will add some notebooks tags display next since this site doesn’t provide them yet and I was curious what other devs code about
P.S.: also I hope you guys can add some of those user bio stats in the next user dash update whenever that happens. I’d like to see more than just a list of notebooks and a link to github repos when I click on dev profiles
I added new collections info, switched to using more responsive Glitch proxy for those observable api calls, added more prominent Get Stats user input, and refined notebooks document section titles. might add forked from others info to the notebooks graph next.
Do take it for a spin and see how you like this unofficial notebooks api explorer:
I know this is starting to look like some wicked inception but I’ve decided to refactor my unofficial Observable api notebooks explorer and created new notebook info js notebook for specific notebook info display:
Notebook Info Visualizer extracts user bio, notebook functions, named and markup cells, and provides plain notebook cells code view:
I’ll add notebook graph today for easy linking to named cells and functions in a notebook.
notebooks.js api is still in the Notebooks Visualizer, if you want to import some of those api hooks and use it elsewhere for collection master notebooks like I’ve done for Chicago Crimes EDA, or for other user/notebook introspection means.
You can play with them to check your Observable user stats or notebook info using this collection:
Also, no reason this Notebook Inspector can’t be converted to a custom Chrome dev extension for navigating observable notebook code similar to how most front-end frameworks have extensions for custom DOM inspection, data binding and events propagation tracking, etc
I could give that a shot if there is interest in a tool like that from this dev community.
